Collect - Lustre Wearable
Collect - Lustre Wearable in mixed textiles by Western Australian based artist Sian Boucherd.
Wrapped Woven & Wound presents work from seven female artists, who explore the use of interlaced or wrapped components in a mix of sculptural, decorative and functional pieces.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Siân Boucherd was born in rural Western Australia in 1983. Following the completion of her Art and Design Degree in 2007, Boucherd pursued a curatorial practice in London. During this period she worked within gallery contexts as well as site specifically in the natural environment. A return to Australia in 2012 saw her return to the studio where Boucherd's interest in nature manifest in her woven works. Through the use of natural fibres such as sisal, jute and wool Boucherd creates meticulously hand crafted vessels by way of a coiling basketry technique. Boucherd takes her cues from nature's architecture; formations such as pods, nests, cocoons and the unique striations that make up Western Australias’ ancient geology.
